Brave Uphold wallet verification in India

Your customer service has been saying that they are working on the problem faced by Indian users, but even after 1 month there is no new response on the status of progress and we are still unable to verify our account and secure the BAT earned into Uphold wallet.
Please reply when will the issue be resolved or are you even listening to the complains or are we writing to blind eyes and deaf ears.

Nah, they have updated but a lot of you don’t like to look for answers. I keep seeing multiple people DAILY posting this same type of thing as you. The short summary is nobody knows when or if India will be supported again. They are making attempts to resolve things, but it’s not just at the Brave level.

Also as much as you complain about India, which has only been one month…you forget about Philippines and Vietnam which have been 6-7 months or so now of not being supported. There are MANY other countries being affected as well. So be patient.

Official response:

We’ve moved fast in trying to get BAT to everyone and make ourselves available in as many regions as possible. Unfortunately each government has different restrictions and we’ve encountered some pushback from that in different countries. For example, each country has different requirements for KYC/AML among other things that weren’t being met by current standards, so those regions had to be put on hold while this gets resolved.

We really want India and other countries to be able to be Verified and are working behind the scenes to do everything we need. We hope to get this resolved ASAP but there’s no timeline.

And as I said, many places are impacted. You can check links below to see everyone who currently can’t connect.
